change

April 23, 2009

Two hours ago boston.com published an article about Obama, and the title was “Obama open to torture memos probe, prosecution”. The president explained in this article that he conceives prosecution against the employee within Bush administration, which ordered CIA to perform torture like apparent drowning, sleep loss and violence. Obama added that it is the Minister of Justice responsibility to decide if there should be any prosecution.
The president had the day before promised that there should be no judicial process against them, he said that these people has only lead orders to project their country. It seems to be an opinion he first shared with the earlier vice-president Dick Chaney, he also defended the hard questioning. According to Chaney it gave him valuable information on the road to stop new terrorist attacks against the USA.
But, Obama has changed his opinion. We already now that Obama’s keyword is Change, in the election he talked about change all the time, and I liked it. But I did not think he would change his opinion over a night. Suddenly he thought that USA had lost the moral compass when the torture was performed.
I think it is quite odd that Obama has apologized so much for USA’s earlier behaviour. Sure, I think that it is important that USA doesn’t appear like an arrogant country, but they shouldn’t be seemed like a weak, feeble-minded and apologizing country either.
I think Barack Obama has made the right desision. The Question according to me is if the methods lead to truthful information or it the people who were tortured confessed everything and just told them what they wanted to hear. Regardless if it was true or not, just to stop the suffering…

When I examined the source I found a number similar aricles in the Internet, with the same information. One of them was Walesonline.co.uk (link down below)

Ku Klux Klan vs. barack Obama

April 22, 2009

I have decided to change track in my blog, since I do not find any new and interesting articles about the Guantanamo prisoners. But of course, I will continue to follow Barack Obama in his work and acting. A couple weeks ago, I read an article (http://www.dailysquib.co.uk/?c=117&a=1227) about Ku Klux Klan, a racist organisation that struggles for white supremacy and a society based on awareness of the different races. The article tells us that it is the first time in Klan history that any member of the KKK has ever publicly supported an African American candidate for the presidency. This surprised me, and I think it surprised almost everybody since they actually have a racist direction, and last time I checked was Obama still black. The reason seems to be “that anything or anyone is better than having that “crazy ass bitch” as Hillary Clinton. My first thought was if they really support Obama or if he just is the better alternative?

A couple days ago, I saw a news bill that told me that KKK’s do NOT endorse Barack Obama, in other words a new direction. I decided to search for an article about this on the Internet, since I found this very interesting. I found an article in the Huffington post written of Michael Gene Sullivan. I read that this person is a veteran writer and also a director, when I look at his work I noticed that he have wrote a lot about politic. The Hufflington post is an American liberal news website and aggregated web log. The site has won many prices, for example The Best Politics Blog in 2006 and 2007. It seems like this site is serious so I regard this source as trustworthy. In this article I read a quote from Imperial Grand Wizard Gomer Bath “”Our secret membership just did not feel that Senator Obama was addressing our core values.” He thinks it is missing something in his standpoints, special his standpoints in medical care, which evidently is important for the KKK’s. They want more substance in Obama’s promises. What does this means? Is this something Obama should be scared for? I actually do not think so, but I actually agree a little bit. It feels like that he has promised many things, but I think he rarely tell us how he will solve the problems.

 

What do you think?
